Dry, itchy skin got you down? Don’t worry, there’s hope—or rather, soap—for that! With our all-natural, homemade exfoliating soaps, hydrated skin is only a shower away.

Gentle exfoliation is the key to silky soft skin. Our DIY soap bars include natural exfoliating ingredients to remove dead skin from the surface, plus a combination of coconut and essential oils to soothe as you scrub.

After a couple weeks, don’t be surprised if your friends are all, “Look at you glow, girl!” the next time you meet for lunch.

Homemade exfoliating soaps are masters at renewing dull, dehydrated skin—and they do it in style. Each one is uncommonly beautiful, thanks to natural ingredients like Himalayan pink salt and poppy seed. The unique way the exfoliators disperse throughout the soap simply adds to their charm. Display the bars as part of your bathroom decor or wrap a ribbon around one of our naturally exfoliating soaps for a gift that keeps your friends glowing.

Ingredients to make homemade exfoliating soap

Homemade exfoliating soap is easier to customize when you start with a premade base. We used the same base—organic melt and pour glycerin soap plus coconut oil—for each bar but changed up the exfoliating ingredients and essential oils.

We recommend using silicone soap molds with circles approximately 2 ½ inches in diameter.

Yield: Approximately 3 soaps

6 ounces suspended organic melt and pour glycerin soap
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Exfoliating ingredient
Essential oils

How to make homemade exfoliating soap

1. Cut soap into about 1-inch cubes.
2. Put soap and coconut oil in a large microwave-safe bowl.
3. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until soap is completely melted, stirring in between to smooth clumps.
4. Add essential oils and mix well.
5. Add exfoliating ingredient slowly, stirring well to combine and remove all clumps. Work quickly before the soap gets too cool.
6. Pour into molds. Let sit until solid, approximately 1-3 hours.
